In July we published an open letter which set out our initial thinking on the network charging arrangements for small distribution connected electricity generators (called ‘embedded benefits’). It set out our initial thinking on the payments these generators receive and also the charges they avoid paying. We expressed our concerns about the specific payments that embedded generators received from suppliers for helping them to reduce the electricity transmission charges they face at peak times, the Transmission Netwok Use of System (TNUoS) demand residual and we asked for your feedback on the issues raised. 

We received 145 responses from a wide range of stakeholders and we thank you for your input and thoughts on the subject. Below we publish all of the non-confidential responses.
